Abstract: A user-centered design approach for new technologies focuses the development process on the needs and requirements of the future users of the technology and does not limit research and development actions on functionality. The aim of this approach is to maximize acceptance and implementation success. There is always a variety of users and stakeholders. In the health care sector, this can be patients, relatives, therapists, physicians but also insurances, politicians as well as companies with commercial interests. Considering the visions of each of the users and stakeholders in a project and translating this into a technical solution requires the involvement of a variety of professionals with different expertise. This can result in a stimulating and productive work environment but also poses a variety of challenges that need to be addressed proactively.
